Below there is a selections of reliable websites and organizations that need and would love to have our support
Sofiya Stepan is a sister in law of my close and good friend Gosha Danilov, Sofiya and her 3 kids managed to flee from just south of Kyiv after spending their first week hiding in cold basements during air raid alarms, the next day after they left, a missile hit the house next to theirs completely destroying it. The evacuation was very quick, they had to leave everything behind, only carrying the clothes they were in, phones/chargers and a file with documents. No space for personal luggage. 3 days later they crossed the border of Romania on foot and received a warm welcome from Romanian volunteers. They are now safe, have a roof over their heads and food to eat thanks to all the kind people in Romania, yet their resources are very limited and with only one change of clothes/shoes, with no personal devices for youngest twins to continue school (they've been in remote learning already during COVID) - they certainly can use some help, we are making this fundraiser to help Sofiya and her kids with getting the most necessary things to make their refugee life safe, productive and to continue school. The funds will be transferred directly to Sofiya’s PayPal account and/or used to purchase and send needed items. Sofiya’s husband had to stay in Ukraine taking care of his sick parents who couldn’t leave the country. Your support is so helpfully amazing!

Friends that I trust created a group: TrustChain: Ukraine Warzone Volunteer Support Network
The mission of this group is to directly reach a network of 100% vetted volunteers in Ukraine who provide the on-the-ground work of procuring and delivering food, medical supplies and evacuations. We work through a system we call TrustChain, which is a social network of trusted connections on both ends. Your contribution is guaranteed to be delivered to people on the ground over our TrustChain network through a sequence of trusted connections. We will be posting regular updates with what the money was able to accomplish each day.

"The war in Ukraine is a tragedy not only for people but also for animals. It is hard to describe the current situation – bombs and rockets are dropped on shelters, animals die on the spot or run around in shock," say Viva! Rescue Centre. "There is a shortage of food and resources for treating sick and injured animals. The situation is dramatic."

Interview clip with Alexei Voronin - the operational leader of the grass roots evacuation and resupply effort called Vehicles of Light on the ground in Ukraine.
We are buying cars for these folks that operate under horrendous and dangerous conditions to get vulnerable people to safety away from hot zones. The Vehicles of Light is a grass roots effort run completely by volunteers. At this point we have raised nearly $80,000 - enough for 4 used mini buses and the fuel to drive them. Our goal is raise funding for 10 more cars ($300,000). Please help, every dollar counts!!
